... through the ups and downs, so they can sleep more soundly.

Our peer groups help leaders like you build value, reduce stress and inject fun into their business.

 

Is this for you?

You are an entrepreneurial business leader in the technology or creative sector. It can be thrilling. When it's going well, running a growing business like yours is the best job on earth. 
But it’s a roller-coaster. The good times are great, but the hard times can be brutal. There will be times when it is desperately lonely, sleep is impossible, and the burden seems intolerable.
The challenges of growing a business can be complex and multi-dimensional. So who can you talk to?  Where can you turn for great ideas, cheerful encouragement, understanding, support, perspective and guidance?
The Growth Leader Programmes are built to help business leaders like you meet the challenges of growth, at each stage of business development. It's where you meet and work regularly with a group of like-minded, entrepreneurial adventurers to go on the journey together.
It's a time to work on the business, not in the business. It's a time for inspiration, personal learning and growth. It's about helping others as well as receiving help and support.
Only people willing to share and solve problems together, without ego or hidden agenda, qualify.
There's no end of sources explaining what a leader should do. Our commitment is to make sure you know how to do it.

Advice and Accountability

Our approach uses expert advice, workshops, instructions and homework - so you can apply new knowledge between sessions. Frequently, we’ll exploit the power of peer groups - where you learn from the experience and expertise of other leaders.
Vitally, we will also hold you accountable! Every month you’ll be expected to update the group on progress.

The Growth Leader Commitment

The non-negotiable, timeless principles of membership.

Signing up for Growth Leaders requires a leap of faith! We’re going to ask you to be open, receptive, and willing to share – but we won’t ask you to do anything we wouldn’t do ourselves. 

Values

To guarantee a safe and positive environment for our members, we all commit to these values:

•    Humility and respect – None of us is always right, everybody has a valid perspective
•    Courageous honesty – Say it, even if it makes you feel uncomfortable (but with respect)
•    Collaborate and contribute – We learn more together than individually
•    Commitment – If you say you'll do it, you do it
•    Integrity before profit – always – We do the right thing, even if no one’s watching (and it hurts)
•    Decency – just be nice.

Confidentiality, Openness and Honesty

Because we bring our problems, challenges, and issues to the group in a spirit of openness and honesty, we insist on absolute confidentiality. What is discussed in a Leader Group stays within the group. No exceptions. Ever.

Contribution

We collaborate to solve the problems of building, growing, scaling (and perhaps ultimately, selling) a business. We commit to contribute generously to help our fellow members and as such we share our:

  • plans and ideas
  • challenges and problems
  • experiences, successes and failures
  • resources and tools
  • contacts and connections

Vulnerability

Participating in a Leader Group requires openness, honesty and vulnerability. This is not a place for arrogance and ego.  We actively discourage the participation of egotists, the self-obsessed and know-it-alls.  It is a place for the courageous sharing of problems and hard lessons learned.
